Quantum Theory of Nanomaterials Group

 The Quantum Theory of Nanomaterials (QTNano) group, www.qtnano.iqsc.usp.br, started on 08.01.2009 through the project “Computational Catalysis: Hydrogen Production From Ethanol”, which was funded FAPESP www.fapesp.br (Young Researcher) and started at the São Carlos Institute of Physics, www.ifsc.usp.br, University of São Paulo, www.usp.br.

On May 17, 2012, the project / group was transferred to the São Carlos Chemistry Institute, www.iqsc.usp.br, in the same Campus, in the city of São Carlos. The group’s formal formalization began in the second half of 2013, and approval in early 2014. In early 2018, the group’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/QTNano, was created to spread the work of the community work. . To date, several students have completed their master’s, doctoral, and postdoctoral work in the group. The group currently has several members, including undergraduate students, masters, doctorates, and postdocs. We are always looking for new students interested in getting a solid education and publishing articles in high impact magazines.
